raygun

Pro

i affirm the resolution. resolved: debate sucks.

this is true because it is pointless.
I-am-a-panda

Con

I would like to thank my opponent for this debate.

Suck: to draw into the mouth by producing a partial vacuum by action of the lips and tongue:

Debate: a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints

According to these definitions, my opponent must prove that a debate, which is not a person or animate thing, can suck an object. Examples will include sucking liquid though a straw, sucking a nipple, or sucking a cockerels neck gibbet.

Of course, my case will rest upon the fact a debate is not a thing which physically exists, but is rather an action. An action cannot suck something.

I will leave it to my opponent to prove a debate can indeed suck an object.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

sucks - (slang) to behave in a fawning manner (usually fol. by around).
Sucks (slang) to be repellent or disgusting: Poverty sucks.

hahah! SUCK ON THAT! ooooooooooooooooooh!

Con

My opponent failed to prove the definitions in the first round. Because I defined the definitions first, mine stand.

Also, my opponent has failed to make an argument whatsoever, and did not refute mine.

Ergo, I urge a CON vote.

+ Conduct to PRO, because CON utterly abused the debate.

+ English to CON for obvious reasons.

+ Sources to PRO, because CON utterly abused his source.

+ Argument is a tie, as no valid argument was presented on either side.
